INTERIOR

The interior of Kia Sportage 2014 looks classy with the ‘nano’ paint finish over dash and center console and the upper door trims adored with soft touch materials. Sitting over leather upholstered six-way adjustable seat, you’ll have to grab the heated steering wheel. Talking about the technological advancements you’ll have a 4.2 inch TFT LCD creating the dual bezel instrument cluster featuring information like, outdoor temperature, Flex Steer modes, gear shift and Parallel Park assist.

To enrich your entertainment segment, interior of Kia Sportage 2014 for the first time comes with Infinity premium audio system. A total of seven speakers come mounted inside the model including a subwoofer which makes the entire experience thunderous and enchanting.

EXTERIOR

The exterior of Kia Sportage 2014 looks gorgeous and easily grabs the attention of people passing by. Starting with the front fascia, tiger-nose grille gets the blend of central radiator mesh design and looks stunning sitting amidst the enhanced headlights with better illumination. Having HID headlights make the model walk closer to its rivals. There is also a backup camera to assist driver while taking reverse gears. Front looks aggressive with its fog lamps incorporated in bumper and sleek horizontal air vent in center. Marching towards the rear profile, the window mounted at back might feel small like in ancestor models but we believe the presence of rear view mirror won’t let it bother much. Apart from this looking at the exterior of Kia Sportage 2014 from back looks very much similar to its ancestors. Rounding up the entire details we can say that the new model has a bit more of aggression while rolling over 17-inch wheels.
